Super Bowl 2019: A Good One

Call me old-fashioned for enjoying unapologetic patriotism: honoring our troops, our flag, and our country.  Leftists will call me a stupid black man suffering from Stockholm syndrome for loving my country.  They’ve done it to others.

But then there was rhythm and blues superstar Gladys Knight, the empress of soul, and her stellar performance of our national anthem at Super Bowl 2019.  It brought tears to my eyes.  I salute Ms. Knight for courageously rejecting pressure from leftists to boycott the event.  She went one better than that because she gave it her all.

The Los Angeles Rams, meanwhile, said they might skip visiting the White House if they were to win the Super Bowl.  I am pleased to announce that they lost.

Folks, I am so weary of leftists’ relentless efforts to dis my president and throw political cold water on everything we enjoy in America.  A few years ago, leftists absurdly claimed that domestic violence spikes on Super Bowl Sunday.  It doesn’t, so now they’ve kept quiet about it.  Why are leftists obsessed with urinating on the traditions Americans enjoy?

During this Super Bowl, video was shown of the NFL meeting with black civil rights leaders to address the issue of social justice.  I disapprove of the NFL pandering to leftists’ lie claiming that blacks are routinely mistreated in America and something must be done about it.  For crying out loud, Americans elected one of the worst presidents in U.S. history, two times, mostly because he was black.  America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for their dreams.  Yet there they go, bringing out their oppression cards.

As a football fan, I thank President Trump for effectively forcing the NFL to back away from disrespecting our flag and national anthem.  I agree with Rush Limbaugh that Trump saved the NFL. 

As for me, feasting on steamed shrimp seasoned with Old Bay, I enjoyed watching the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl.  I like their team spirit and strong work ethic.  Coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady have a history of excellence.  Some NFL coaches allow players to do as they please during training.  In New England, Coach Belichick is in charge.  Period.

Between Gladys Knight’s awesome passionate rendition of our national anthem and Tom Brady winning his sixth ring, I thoroughly enjoyed Super Bowl Sunday.

My wife Mary enjoyed watching the puppy and kitten bowls.  Mary said not one puppy took a knee during the playing of our national anthem.

    I didn’t watch the game. I’m not a fan of football, personally.I have seen several reviews by different pundits, some pro and some con. Since I live just outside St Louis, I have a very bitter taste in my mouth about the LA Rams. I was i LA years ago, before they moved to St Louis. In my estimation, they have always been a losing team. When they tried to use extortion on the city of St Louis, to build them a Billion dollar stadium, I was GLAD when the city fathers said, “Hell no!” I am glad to read that you found the game worth watching, Lloyd, and from the sound of it, maybe I did miss something after all.

    Aside from that, I want to encourage you to keep on doing what you do and doing what you believe in! I repost a lot of your work on my Gab.ai account. I also put what I consider the very best of Lloyd Marcus on my paper li newspaper, “We ARE the People”. Many of us are former users of Twitter, who have been kicked off for having UN-liberal post’s. On Gab we are able to enjoy the freedom of expression. I don’t know if you follow Twitter, but we would all benefit from it if you wanted to join us. Right now, they are restricting new members, due to the ‘establishment’ using every dirty trick in the book to get Gab off the internet!

    Also, if you have the time, you might check in to my newspaper, at:

    Have a GREAT DAY, Lloyd!
